Amiga & AROS "The Timberwolf team is proud to announce the immediate availability of the first beta version of Timberwolf 4.0.1. Timberwolf is an AmigaOS web browser based on Firefox/Mozilla technology. This technology is more than just a browser, it is an enabling technology, bringing powerful tools such as html5, WebM, JavaScript, XUL, and more to AmigaOS 4.x. These are the building blocks for other applications as well, such as the email client 'Thunderbird' or the media center 'Songbird'. This first beta release includes almost the full functionality of the browser, allowing style-sheet enabled web browsing, secure connections, use of Firefox add-on and more."

Just can't keep those Amiga dudes down.

Can't be done! They say okay and do it.

Sooo... a decade more for memory management? (hence also proper multitasking, vs. the not-quite-one that depends on well-behaving apps, where any any program can essentially take over)
Two decades?

Will by then all applications be just ports of OSS stuff from the PC? (with all classic ones in UAE, which a) is needed for most historical ones already b) most likely runs better on a PC, certainly with much better perf-per-buck;
oh, and yes, OTOH those Amiga dudes also said things in vein of ~"Amiga won't be emulated on a PC, too complex")
